STREAM FUNCTION

In studying the two-dimensional flow of fluid, it is desirable to have a name for the quantity of fluid

passing between a given point and a reference point. The quantity is termed the stream function ψ of the given

point. In two-dimensional flow, the dimensions of stream function are in square feet per second.

In Figure 2.8a, 0 is the reference point, 0AP and 0BP are any two lines connecting 0 and P is the amount

of fluid crossing line 0AP per second must be the same as the amount of fluid crossing 0BP per second: this

amount per second is the stream function of P.

In Figure 2.8b, points P and P’ are two points on the same streamline. The stream function of P is the

amount of fluid crossing line 0P per second. Since fluid cannot cross line PP’, the quantity of fluid crossing line

0P’ per second is the same as the quantity of fluid crossing the line 0P per second. Therefore points on the same

15

streamline have the same stream function, and conversely, points having the same stream function are the on the

same streamline. Similarly if 0’ is on s streamline passing through 0, the fluid crossing 0P per second is the

same quantity as that crossing 0’P per second, since no fluid crosses 00’. Then the stream function of P with

respect to 0 is the same as the stream function of P with respect to 0’.

FLOW

In two-dimensional flow, the velocity V may be resolved into two components, parallel to the X and Y

axes respectively. The velocity component parallel to the X axis is termed u; its direction is positive if from

lower to greater values of x, i.e., to the right. The component parallel to the Y axis is termed v; it is positive if

the direction is toward increasing positive values of y, i.e., upward.

If P and P’ are points on adjacent streamlines (see Figure 2.9) and if dψ is the difference between their

respective stream functions and dx and dy, the difference between their coordinates, the quantity of fluid

crossing PP’ per second must equal the quantity crossing PA plus the quantity crossing AP’ per second. Then

dψ = udy − vdx

∂ψ ∂ψ

dψ = dx + dy

∂x ∂y

Then

∂ψ

u=

∂y

∂ψ

v=−

∂x

When the value of ψ is known as a function of the x and y coordinates for all points in a two- dimensional fluid

flow, the velocity may be determined.

Example: If fluid is flowing so that ψ = x 2 − y 2 , determine the velocity at the point (3, 2).

Solution:

∂ψ ∂ 2

u= = (x − y2 )

∂y ∂y

u = −2 y = −(2)(2) = −4 ft / sec

∂ψ ∂

v=− = (x2 − y 2 )

5. What is the velocity at point (4, 4), if ψ = ln( x 2 + y 2 ) ?

Ans. V = 0.35 ft/sec

θ = 315.00

In the mathematical study of fluid flow, a useful concept is a source, or a sink. A source is a point at

which fluid is appearing at a definite, uniform rate: if there is no disturbance to the flow the fluid will travel

radically outward from the source. A sink is a negative source or a point at which fluid is disappearing at a

definite, uniform rate. With no disturbance, the fluid travels radially inward equally from all directions.

The strength m of a source is the quantity of fluid appearing per second; in two-dimensional flow it is

measured in square feet per second. The streamlines from a source are radial lines. If one of these streamlines is

designated as a base or reference line, and the streamline through point P makes an angle θ with these

reference line, θ being measured counterclockwise from the reference line, the stream function for the point P

is

mθ

ψ= , θ in radians

ψ= , θ in deg rees

and the direction of V makes the angle the angle θ with the reference line.

The stream function of a source, of strength m, located at the origin is ψ = mθ /(2π ), θ being measured

in radians in a counterclockwise direction from the positive X axis. The stream function, straight-line flow

parallel to the X axis and flowing in a positive direction is ψ = +Uy, where U is the constant velocity.

Having the equation for ψ in terms of the constant U and m, and the variables x and y, curves are

plotted for various streamlines, as in Figure 2.10a. The streamline representing ψ = 0 is the X axis plus a curve

resembling a parabola, PP’, shown as a heavy solid line in Figure 2.10a.

As no fluid may cross a streamline, any streamline may be replaced by a solid boundary, so that the

streamlines of Figure 2.10a may be considered as the flow of a horizontal wind striking a hill shaped like PP’ in

Figure 2.10b.

The velocity being ascertainable at any point in the flow, if the pressure is known at some one point,

Bermoulli’s law may be used to find the pressure at any other point on a given streamline.

Example: A source of strength of 600 sq ft per sec located at the origin (0, 0) is superimposed on a uniform

flow of 500 ft per sec parallel to the X axis in a negative direction. If the pressure in the flow remote from this

source is standard atmospheric, what is the pressure at the point (0, 1.5)? Note: This point is on the streamline

ψ = 0.

The components of the velocity being known, the resultant velocity may be found. The pressure being

known at same point in the flow, the pressure at another point on the same streamline may be calculated by

Bernoulli’s law. Owing to the symmetry of the streamlines, the pressure on the surface, ψ = 0, are symmetric

about the X and Y axes. The sum of the vertical pressures is zero, and the sum of the horizontal pressures is

zero.

Example: A source whose strength is 314. 2 sq ft per sec and a sink, whose strength is -314.2 sq ft per sec are

located at (1.0) and (-1.0) respectively. They are superimposed in a uniform flow of -100 ft per second parallel

to the X axis. If the pressure in the flow remote from the source and sink is atmospheric and if the fluid is air,

what is the pressure at the point (1.05, 0.6)? Note: This point is on the streamline ψ = 0.

It was shown that the stream function of a source and a sink, each located on the X axis at a distance of

2c apart, is

m 2cy

ψ= tan −1 2 2

2π x + y −c

and the streamline for ψ = 0 is the X axis and a curve resembling an ellipse.

If the distance 2c between the source and the sink is made smaller while the strengths m and -m are

made larger, the product, 2cm, always being kept constant, the ratio of the length of the major axis to the length

of the minor axis of the elliptic figure will become less. As the distance 2c approaches zero in value, the figure

will become more nearly circular, when it is combined with a uniform flow. Letting µ = 2cm, Eqn.

SKIN FRICTION - skin friction is air resistance, and it is the tangential component of force on the surface of a

body due to the friction between the two particles.

STREAMLINE AND TURBULENT FLOW - a streamline flow may be defined as smooth non-turbulent flow.

A turbulent flow is defined as a flow characterized by turbulence that is a flow in which the velocity varies

erratically in both magnitude and direction with time.

LAMINAR FLOW – the word laminar is derived from the Latin word lamina meaning a thin plate of metal or

some other material. Laminar flow employs the concept that air is flowing in thin sheets or layers close to the

surface of a wing with no disturbance between the layers of air.

BOUNDARY LAYER– the boundary layer is that layer of air adjacent to the airfoil surface. The cause of the

boundary layer is the friction between the surface of the wing and the air.

LAMINAR BOUNDARY LAYER – in the laminar boundary layers the flow is steady and smooth. As a

result, the layer is very thin, and so the form drag is very small. Also, the velocity gradient at the walls, though

large enough to give significant viscous stress, is yet only moderate, so that the skin friction, though not

negligible, is also very small.

TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYER – in turbulent boundary layers the flow is unsteady and not smooth, but

phenomenon is often used to determine the location of the transition region. The boundary layer thickness can

32

Where:

αO= angle of attack for zero lift

drag ratio. The maximum cl/cd magnitude can be obtained by drawing a tangent to the cd –

clcurve.

The magnitude of cm depends on the location of the moment center. One important moment

center which is often used is the so-called aerodynamic center (a.c.). It is defined as the point about

which the moment coefficient is independent of α.

DESIGN OF AIRFOIL

To design an airfoil for any specific use, the following effects of airfoil geometry should be noted:

1. Camber shape will affect mainly α0 and cm. Any increase in camber will make α0 and cm more negative.

AIRFOIL SELECTION

In selecting an airfoil for an airplane lifting surface (wing, tail, or canard) the following considerations

are important:

2. Lift –to-drag ratio a values of cl important to airplane performance

3. Thickness (to obtain the lowest possible structural weight)

4. Thickness distribution (to obtain favorable span loading and/or high fuel volume)

5. Stall characteristics (to obtain gentle stall characteristics)

6. Drag-rise behavior (associated with item 1)

7.

GEOMETRIC FACTORS AFFECTING AIRFOIL MAXIMUM LIFT AT LOW SPEEDS

The main features of airfoil design which affect wing stall and hence, the maximum lift coefficient, are:

1. THICKNESS RATIO

t

For a given thickness ratio, , C lmax very much depends on the leading-edge radius. It seen

c

that the new NASA LS = (Low speed airfoils, a thickness ratio of about 13% will produce the best

volume of maximum lift. For the newer LS airfoils the maximum lift occurs at around 15%

thickness.

Clmax depends not only on the thickness ratio, but also on the ratio of section thickness at 5%

chord to the maximum thickness . The ratio is indicative of leading–edge radius. Therefore, a

relatively large leading-edge radius is beneficial to producing large C lmax at low speeds.

The addition of camber is always beneficial to C lmax and the benefit grow with increasing camber.

The increment to maximum lift due to camber is least for sections with relatively large leading edge

t

radius (i.e., the benefit of camber grows with reducing ; and camber is more effective on thin

c

sections than on thick sections). In addition, a forward position of maximum camber produces higher

values of C lmax For example, the NACA 23012 airfoil (with 2% maximum camber at 0.15 chord) has a

C lmax of 1.79 as compared with 1.67 for NACA 4412 (with 4% camber at 0.4 chord but the same

thickness distribution) at a Reynolds number of 9 x 106

4. REYNOLDS NUMBER

For airfoils with moderate thickness ratio, there is a significant because increase in C lmax with

increasing Reynolds number. On the other hand, for thin airfoils the effect of Reynolds number is

relatively significant. In general, these Reynolds number effects are less for cambered than for

symmetrical sections. At low Reynolds number, the effect of camber is more insignificant. The

opposite is true at Reynolds number greater than 6 x 106, where camber losses some of its effects

EFFECT OF HIGH LIFT DEVICES ON AIRFOIL MAXIMUM LIFT

Plain Flaps

1. Formed by hinging the rear-most par of the wing section about within the contour.

2. The main effect produced by the flap deflection is an increase in the effective camber of the wing.

3. The optimum flap angle is approximately 0.25.

4. The optimum flap angle is approximately 60o.

5. Leakage through gap 1330th of the chord resulted on a loss of 0.35 in C lmax .

6. The maximum achievable increment is C lmax is approximately 0.9.

Split Flaps

1. The unusual split flaps is formed by deflecting the aft portion of the lower surface about a hinge

point on the surfaces of the forward edge of the deflected portion.

2. The optimum flap chord ratio is approximately 0.3 for 12% thick airfoils, increasing to 0.4 or higher

for thicker airfoils.

3. The optimum flap angle is approximately 70o

4. The maximum achievable increment in C lmax is approximately 0.9.

5. The optimum thickness ratio is approximately 18%.

Slotted Flaps

1. Slotted flaps provide one or more slots between the main portion of the wing section and the

deflected flap.

2. The optimum flap chord ratio is approximately 0.9

3. The optimum flap angle is approximately 40o for single slots and 70o for double-slotted flaps.

4. The optimum thickness ratio is approximately 16%

5. The maximum achievable increment in C lmax is approximately 1.5 for single slots and 1.9 for double

slotted flaps.

Fowler Flaps

The Fowler Flaps uses the same principles as the slotted flap, except that the flap also moves

backwards in addition to a downward deflection. Thus, the effective wing area is increased!

Slats

Leading –edge slats are airfoils mounted ahead of the leading edge of the wing such as to assist in turning the

air around the leading edge at high angle of attack and thus delay leading-edge stalling. They may be either

fixed in position of retractable. The use of slats may increase C lmax by as much as 0.5.

Slots

When the slots is located near the leading edge, the configuration differs only in detail from the leading edge

slat. Additional slots may be introduced at various chordwise stations. The effectiveness of the slot derives

from its BLC (= Boundary Layer control)effect. At low angle of attack, the minimum profile drag may be

greatly increased with such slots.

37

Leading –Edge Flaps

A leading flap may be formed by bending down the forward portion of the wing section to form a droop. Other

types of leading –edge flaps are formed by extending a surface downward and forward from the vicinity of the

leading edge (Kruger flap) Leading Edge flaps reduce the severity of the pressure peak ordinarily associated

with high angle of attack and thereby delay separation.

Higher maximum lift coefficient can also be achieved by boundary layer control (BLC). The idea may involve

injecting high-speed for parallel to the wall (called “blowing”), removing the low energy boundary layer flow

by “suction”, or both. Blowing is done to re-energize the boundary layer flow to delay the separation, while

suction is equivalent to eliminating the low energy shear layer.
